When you put on weight it's easy to feel like you need to cover up. The trick is to show a little skin and show your shape. I started with a bodycon dress and took a page out of the Kim K playbook and covered with a sheer oversized coat. I really like to be comfortable in my heels so I put aside my stupid shoes and pulled out my favorite Tamara Mellon Bad Girls. I could seriously run a marathon in these. And let's talk Prada for a moment. My mom recently moved out of the country for a simpler life and left her designer bags in my care. Thanks Ma!

My pics were taken by Belle, Little Fashion Stylist who I'd met the previous week at the StyleWatch party. Thanks girl! We met up for the Miguel Vieira show by Pier 59. I had a seat so I went in and saved us both front row seats. Most shows I'm not lucky enough to sit with a friend so this was a treat.
The show included both men's and women's designs and lots of graphic black and white patterns. And lots of pretty boys :)
I shot Belle on the way out. How cute is she??!! She's wearing her prom dress with a H&M top underneath that she had picked up that day. So clever.
Afterwards we decided to hit a sample sale and then to the Lane Bryant store to meet Christian Siriano who was having a party for his latest plus size collab. I ended up skipping out in another show because like I said, Fashion Week is way more fun with a friend.
In the end I had a great Fashion Week. It was short and sweet but I'm hoping to be bolder and to take NY by storm next round. I'm excited to share that I have a few new collaborations in the works and it's looking like an exciting fall.
Who else is excited for fall! I can't wait to take out all the coats I've collected this past summer!
